For sale is a Fender Custom Shop ’51 NoCaster Relic guitar, built in September 2006. This guitar was built by the Fender Custom shop to the exact specs of the original NoCasters. This guitar is one of the best playing and sounding Tele’s I have ever had. The custom wound Nocaster pickups can go from that classic Tele bite and twang to a nice and warm tone. The neck on this guitar is the beefier, “U” shaped neck…..it is one of the best feeling and smoothest playing necks I have ever experienced. The guitar is pretty light and weighs about 7.1 pounds as best I can tell with my scale.
The guitar originally came with a 3-way switch but I had a 4-way switch professionally installed, along with a premium “oil and paper” 0.047 mfd capacitor (similar to the ones that came on the originals). The 4-way switch mod is really awesome becasue you get the classicTele configurations (Bridge alone, Neck alone, and Bridge in parallel with Neck) and also you the 'Bridge in series with Neck' option you can choose….this gives more output and a more powerful sound (similar to a hum bucker)…..it really rocks with a thick warm tone. Couple this guitar with a lower wattage tube amp (especially a Fender Tweed), and the sound is incredible……this guitar will sing and scream at the whim of the player.
This NoCaster has been given Fender’s “Relic” treatment where they “age” it to show years of natural wear and tear; with nicks, scratches, worn finish, aged hardware and aged plastic parts. It is hard to describe the condition of a relic guitar since t
